final questions before I order my lift...

So I have a 2012 Double Cab Long Bed 4x4 Sport. I am ordering the Toytec ULK, with LR UCA's, and the Dakkar leaf pack. I am also ordering the carrier bearing drop. I am going with the XD Monsters 18x9 with the Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/65/18.

I may end up installing the lift and put the stock wheels back on for a few days while I wait to have the tires and wheels show up at Discount. Will I run into problems not getting the stock wheels back on once the lift is installed without the wheel spacers? I plan on installing the lift, then adding the tires and wheels, maybe the same day. I dont want to get the lift installed and realize then I have a problem since I cant get the wheels back on...

question that I have....it sounds like most frown on getting wheel spacers. from what I am seeing, spacers are needed when lifting and keeping the stock wheels on the truck. The wheels will have the 5 inch back space. the guys I have seen on this forum with these wheels do not have wheel spacers. I am assuming they are not necessary

then there are the backspace questions...
http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/XD...rn_PQ=6+on+135
4.53 inch backspacing
5.71 inch backspacing

people have said 5 inch back space. Well, I cant exactly average the backspacing here so....which one? the 5.71 or the 4.53?

Even though I have 4wheel parts here, I am going through Discount Tire.

Your lift won't affect your ability to put on stock wheels. As far as I have researched, 4.5" backspacing is sufficient. Someone call me out on that please.

That only works with the OME shocks

No because the coilover is adjustable, and you can turn up the drivers side a little more than the passenger.

the ULK doesn't need a trim-packer spacer because they are adjustable. just crank the driver side up a little more

Thanks guys, thats what I was thinking. that trim pack wont be in the cart!

So with the 4.53 backspacing, the wheels and tires will be sticking out a bit more than the 5.71 if I understand back spacing correctly. it should have a wider stance, even though it is minimal. Am I correct on this?

So I called toytec today and the billie rear shocks for the ULK are on back order until May. They will substitute the OME shock for the rears if I go with the ULK. I can get a $500 credit for my stock tires if I trade them in to the tire store before 2000 miles and I am a few weeks away from that, so May wont work for me. I also dont want to have my truck look like someone who is wearing mismatching socks. I want to keep the shocks looking the same.

It looks like I can get the extended travel ICON lift kit, with the diff drop, carrier bearing drop, shims, Dakkar leaf pack, u-bolts, LR UCA and anything else I'm forgetting shipped for about $2335 with the TW Discount. Unless someone gives me a good reason, I am going to order this kit tomorrow most likely. just trying to get my taxes wrapped up.
